Organizing Greeting Cards

Have you ever found the perfect card a little too early and wondered if you ought to buy it? Or perhaps you end up misplacing it in the drawer (you know the one, we all have it) instead?

Well I decided to come up with a way to organize them!

The file I am using is from CAINZ HOMES and has 12 pockets [1 for each month of the year]. Its a very popular item made by them. 
There is also an A5 version and an A4 version.

Its useful for sorting monthly bills or savings.

To take note of the monthly birthdays and events which I might need cards for, I have also included monthly calendar pages in each month's pocket.

Now whenever i find the right card, I can purchase it ahead of time and file it in this case!

Last but not least, I added a label indicating what the folder is for. (That is because I have quite a few of these folders for other purposes! They are really useful.)

Have you bought any of these folders before?
What do you use yours for?

Review: Kingjim Flatty

We all love a good stationery pouch and there are many choices out there.  

The kingjim flatty (yellow pictured above) is one such choice. 

It comes in a variety of sizes, some of which are similar to other products. 
For example, the clear hightide pouch and yellow flatty in the above pouch. 

Both have a closure and multiple internal pockets, but the selling point of the flatty is a stiff backing, which keeps everything inside nice and properly organised. 

The pencase fits a good amount of pens and stationery. 

Whilst the A4 size fits documents and notebooks perfectly. 

They even have a pocket at the back for quick access. 

The flatty is very durable and comes in many great colours. 
I often use it for travel, especially for work documents, which might be difficult to keep in good condition due to luggage moving and overfilled bags. 

The only downside is that it might be a bit heavier than similar pouches but that's a small price to pay for good organisation.
